Since we dont know which 4g64 you have, I would guess it is a 7 bolt.
The point is you will not be turning your 4g64 into a 4g63, you still would have a 4g64, your thread name is misleading and confusing. Maybe you can change it.
For sure have your block hot tanked, your crank looks like it needs to be cut, there are some good marks on there, take to machine shop and maybe it may just need polishing, let them make the decision.
WE sometimes try to save a few bucks and pay the price later, have rods check by machine shop...
Open track days are a lot of fun, this usage would change things, I am talking about strut braces, a member of this forum makes them and it should be one of the first things I would add.
Look at the track layout and see how many turns are left or right, this will tell you about mods to fuel and...
More is not always better for a road course, more so if it is a small track, you already have the base for a good , powerful engine.
Try to get true 16 g or similar but not chinese, use your eprom ecu and go with ecmlink, run speed density and run e85 if available,you can sell the injectors you...
SO you did something else to the engine besides the oring.
I dont think putting more miles on engine is going to help that much, you need to do the oil pressure mod on your oil pump.
Deleting the balance shafts is probably the reason for the problem.Mandy
You may have to go to an underdrive pulley on your wp, I am sure you dont turn your KIA or your ALTIMA, the same RPM, RPMS will also kill wp, alt, ps.
Do all the above about cleaning your system, but maybe start looking for an underdrive pulley for your next one.Mandy
Go to any auto part store and find your belt , this is not rocket science get familiar with the nomenclature of the brand you prefer, the part number on the belt will tell you , number of ribs and size of belt, the first number or letter will tell you it is a multi rib, the second set is how...
Congratulations on a very clean car, not many left in that condition.
By the way I am sure we are close to each other, I stay at a house close to Marlin stadium, which I am repairing and the other by eureka drive.
The crank is not ground down, it is only for polishing, it will not reduce its strenght , this is the last procedure when a crank is cut all the time.
Knife edging is not recommended, unless it is a full race engine, not a daily nor a once in awhile pull, like I said a dedicated race engine.
If you are thinking of dropping the oil pan, do it now and start fresh, you will be able to get a better idea of what you have, and then proceed with your oil changes.
Just about any brand oil will suffice for your first or second change.
You could add a quart of tranny oil, mineral spirits...
Although not my position to reply, the subframe does not need to be cut out, I have taken measurements of this same engine and the inner space between the subframe and it shows plenty of space.
In the Miatas the same cuts are done to the firewall and the very backend corners of the frames, and...
Nice start, I think you have started something that many wanted to do, but for many reasons have never tried. I disagree with most of what was posted in your other thread, your dad is probably and old time Hot Rodder and this does not seem to him as a big deal.
The complete firewall wont have to...
How did we go from bottom of car to the top?
If you really want to tighten the car, the first add on I would get are the fender braces made by a member here, "greengoblin", but you have to get them as soon as he starts making them as they go pretty fast.
I dont have them on mine as I go from the...
These are the measurements--depth 1 7/8--width 5 5/8--length 42 1/2.
For the price I dont think they can be beat.
Brandon look at your floorboard they are probably raised the same amount as the bottom.
This is a great add on as our cars are weak in this area.
Had nothing but problems, City made me move cars, so now I have them stored away hope to find a place to work on them, I have also had health problems.
I have made a new hood and bumper mold and had the parts made, I also made one for a Miata, also a trunk that fits an NA and NB, besides...
It is still a polycarbonate.
How are you going to refuel or maybe only fuel up, funnel, can with a spout?
If you are using a close to stock tank location, I think the best is the stock filler.
Even a 5 galon can at that height gets pretty heavy, but if you like it there, fine with me.
I really dont like the idea of the fuel filler neck, I would not place it on the quarter window.
I think you will have spillage all over the plexi and down the side of the car, if later you want to go to a dry-break system, the plastic will not hold up to a dump can.Mandy
You will be border line, winches are rated on a straight pull, which will not be your case, it will depend a lot on trailer height, ramp angle and attachment point on the car.
Dont ever unclutch, going up or down. Make sure noone is behind car, it may sound bumb but I have seen accidents...
